Assisting Survivors of Hurricane Harvey

Southeastern Texas has been pummeled with unprecedented flooding this weekend after the arrival of Hurricane Harvey, leaving thousands of residents stranded and in need of help. There are a variety of ways the CSUSM community can assist victims of the storm:

The American Red Cross is accepting donations on its website. You can also text HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10. Donations can also be made via iTunes.

AmeriCares takes medicine and supplies to survivors.

Catholic Charities provides food, clothing, shelter and support services to those from all religious backgrounds.

For more options, the Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends checking with the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster for a list of trusted disaster-relief organizations in Texas.
